How to Draw a Parrot
By [http://EzineArticles.com/expert/Annette_Labedzki/252070]Annette Labedzki
Parrots, also known as psittacoses, are considered one of the most intelligent birds, with some of their species being equipped with the ability to imitate human voices. This makes them a popular pet. There are about 372 species of parrots, found around the world and they come under the Order Psittaciformes. The Order is further subdivided into three Families: the Psittacidae (true parrots), the Cacatuidae (Cockatoos), and the Strigopidae (New Zealand parrots). Found in all the tropical and subtropical continents, their diet mostly consists of nuts, fruits, buds, and other plant material, although a few species also eat insects and small animals.
Required tools for drawing:
� Eraser (just in case you don’t get the curves correct)
� Paper or canvas
� Color & paint brush (optional)
Steps for drawing a parrot: Here, we are drawing a parrot facing left, such that the head is to the left and the tail is on the right side of the paper or canvas. With a light hand, roughly sketch the bird so that you can later erase the unwanted lines. Lets begin:
� Head: First, draw a circle of the size of a one-rupee coin for the head. At the outer edge of this circle, draw a shape resembling the bottom part of a horizontal mango projecting out towards left. This forms the upper beak of the parrot. Make the tip of this mango shape sharp to give it a realistic look. Draw the lower beak by making an arc with its curve downwards, extending over three fourth of the length of the upper beak. Its edges should touch the lower part of the upper beak. After outlining the face, we make the eyes of the parrot. Draw two small vertical ovals of the size of a button, positioned towards the left, within the head. Sketch another shaded circle inside each of these eyes to represent the eyeballs.
� Body: Draw a line in the form of a question mark extending from the head of the parrot towards left, such that the lower half of the question mark forms the feather. Make sure the curved portion of the question mark is wide enough to form the body of the parrot. In effect, make the body by fusing the open end of the question mark with the circle-head above.
� Claws: Draw four half-crescent moons joining the body to make it look like it is sitting on the branch of a tree. Sketch 2 parallel lines haphazardly, extending horizontally to form a branch.
� Shading: Erase the unwanted lines. Darken the remaining sketch using a pencil. Enhance the feathers of the parrot by drawing few straight lines over it. You may color the parrot to beautify it. Parrots are found in different colors, the commonest one being green.

Parrots🐦like the parrots in Parrot Playhouse can live be 35 to 80+ years. They are a huge commitment and stay a toddler for LIFE. Parrots can cost $$ just for regular upkeep or $$$$ if they become ill. Parrots are SLOBS!!! They fling food on the walls and poop on the floor and so much more!!😰
Many parrots 🐦are given up the first 3 yrs of their lives. When they become sexually mature they can become aggressive and loud🔊🔊. (Parrots can cause injury to you or your🚑 CHILDREN⚠️🚼.) It’s important to EDUCATE yourself if you are thinking🤔 about bringing a cockatoo or any parrot into your home. Check your local parrot rescue and ADOPT 😘 You just might find your child for life. ❤🍎❤
Wild Quaker Parrots nest in Chicago IL. These Parrots are amazing to watch! I saw close to 75 Parrots in the parking lot where I work. I first seen only 3 and thought there where lost pets, the very next day there where up to 75. I soon found a nest where up to 25 adults nest in one nest.
These are the kind you find in cages! I have done a lot of research on them since I first learned they where wild in Chicago. They are originally from South America where they are called monk parakeets. In 1967 a crake full where being flown into the JFK airport to be sold in pet stores. Some how the crate broke open and all the birds escaped. They are now in 14 states in the USA and Illinois is one of the 14 states. They are also in Alabama, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Louisiana, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, Texas, and Virginia.
They usually nest in electrical poles and the nest can weigh as much as 200 pounds and up to 40 adult birds will share the same nest. Their nest has to be taken down in some areas by ComEd so they will not set the electrical pole on fire. They try and hand feed what ever babies are in the nest.
They are very smart birds and one of the easiest Parrots to teach to talk. There live from 25 to 30 years!
Regardless of the fact that these birds originate from the tropical climate of South America, they are known to be quite adaptable to even our cold climate.
